Joker Star Calls Out Hollywood Hypocrites’ Fake Environmentalism

‘Stop Taking Private Jets’

Joker star Joaquin Phoenix took to the Golden Globes stage Sunday to tell Hollywood’s elite that they cannot lecture the world about saving the environment while taking private jets to award shows.

Phoenix won the award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama, and used the platform to call out Hollywood hypocrites.

“It’s really nice that so many people have come up and sent their well wishes to Australia,” Phoenix began, referring to the reaction to horrific wildfires currently ravaging the continent.

“But we have to do more than that. It’s such a beautiful gesture. I’ve not always been a virtuous man … I hope together we can be unified and make some changes.” the actor added.

“It’s great to vote, but sometimes we have to take that responsibility on ourselves and make changes and sacrifices in our own lives and I hope that we can do that,” Phoenix continued.

“We don’t have to take private jets from Palm Springs to the awards, please. I’ll try to do better and I hope you will too.” he asserted, tongue firmly in cheek.

Phoenix’s comments came after host Ricky Gervais joked that the A-listers in attendance ‘had to make your own way here in your own plane didn’t you?’ since Jeffrey Epstein was no longer around.

“Shut up, I know he’s your friend but I don’t care,” Gervais told the rich and overprivileged crowd.

One prime candidate for Phoenix’s ire is surely Leonardo DiCaprio, who has repeatedly used award show platforms to lecture tens of millions of viewers about global warming, despite routinely using a CO2 belching private jet to travel between L.A. and New York.

DiCaprio even once took a round trip of 8,000 miles on a private jet from Cannes to New York and back again to collect an award from a clean-water advocacy group.

After flying on another private jet to attend the soccer World Cup in Brazil in 2014, DiCaprio stayed on a 470-foot yacht owned by oil billionaire Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan. The yacht uses fuel equal to 83 American household’s annual worth of CO2 emissions.

DiCaprio represents everything that’s wrong with today’s virtue signaling Hollywood elite.

They lecture ordinary Americans about their lifestyle to earn entertainment industry brownie points, while living extravagant, luxury, carbon-spewing lifestyles themselves.

The Golden Globes also saw the rabidly anti-gun Hollywood completely surrounded by a squadron of armed security, including barricades, bomb-sniffing dogs, LAPD officers, and multiple security checkpoints

The New York Daily News quoted Beverly Hill Police Department Capt. Michael Hill as saying, “We have a robust security plan that includes assistance from our local, state, and federal law enforcement partners. Additionally, we will be using the most contemporary technologies in an attempt to ensure the ceremony is held without incident.”

Entertainment Companies Start Dumping Woke Content As Viewership Tumbles

Published

Zero Hedge

They’ll never admit to it openly, but getting woke makes companies broke. 

Hollywood has been overtly progressive for decades, but this is nothing compared to the social justice invasion since 2016. 

After around five years of an unprecedented leftist onslaught on the entertainment industry we are finally starting to see the rampage lose oxygen.  There’s a weakness within woke productions that the alternative media has been pointing out for a long time – They don’t make a profit because they are designed to appease a minority of leftist zennials that don’t have any money.  This is the wrong crowd to rely on for cash flow.     

It is fair to say that the entertainment industry was partially conned.  First, there are those tantalizing ESG loans that can be easily had as long a company loudly declares their fealty to the social justice agenda.  Then, of course, there is the fact that many corporate CEOs and marketing people track Twitter trends with the ignorant assumption that Twitter is actually a reflection of the real world.  The woke mob on Twitter is amplified by the company itself, while most contrary voices are stifled and buried.  Anyone using the Twitter echo chamber as a marketing gauge would be led to believe that leftist ideology is the prevailing ideology of the nation.  It’s not even close.

Some companies are finally realizing this fact and are taking action to reduce their exposure to woke content, or otherwise perish from loss of viewership.  Here’s the thing – Leftists could take over every platform for media distribution (they almost have), but they still can’t force the public to consume woke content.  Eventually, the loss of viewers and profits is going to hurt their bottom line.  

Warner Media (now owned by Discovery) seems to be on the forefront of the purge of leftist content.  Under chief executive David Zaslav, Discovery is aggressively dissecting Warner to understand why a company with so many iconic brands and franchises is continually failing at the box office and on streaming.  Zaslav is now dumping far left content like the poison it is.  

Most notably, Zaslav was behind the torching of news service CNN+ after less than a month of operation when it utterly failed to pull in subscribers.  Now, he has shelved the $100 million ‘Batgirl’ movie, a woke travesty with woke directors which test audiences hated.  He is also reportedly cutting the impending Supergirl movie, which rumors indicate was designed to replace the beloved Superman franchise with a female version played by a race swapped actress of Colombian descent (the original Supergirl is supposed to be white and blonde).      

Another event that shocked leftists was Netflix taking an ax to “First Kill,” a lesbian vampire series that no one asked for and apparently no one watched. 

This was after Netflix canceled a host of woke programming in the past couple of months, including a show called “Anti-Racist Baby” written by well known Critical Race Theory propagandist Ibram X. Kendi, and another animated show called “Q-Force” (Queer Force).

HBO Max recently canceled their “Gordita Chronicles” after only one season; the show based on a Dominican immigrant family heavily pushed leftist narratives of victim group status and depicted America as a racist and oppressive nation.  No mention of the fact that millions of non-white people try to sneak into the US every year even though it is supposedly “bigoted.”

The examples of purged woke programming go on and on.  This is a smart move by the entertainment media as audiences make it clear with their dollars and their viewership that they don’t want to watch leftist garbage.  However, is it too little too late?  

Some companies like Disney have chosen to foolishly double down on woke content (after numerous box office failures) and others like Warner have lost a lot of good will from their customers.  Corporations and marketing people have long sought to entice customers by researching what audiences want.  But, the new model is to simply TELL customers what to buy, and shame audiences into compliance with a product if they don’t like it. Since 2016 the strategy of media has been to ATTACK customers in response to criticism rather than listening and learning.  This hasn’t gone over well.  Today these businesses are paying the price for their trespasses against the free market.  

It is unlikely that they will be able to win back audiences anytime soon, if ever.

Beyonce Cancelled By Word Police For Saying ‘Spaz’

Saying ‘bitches’, ‘motherf***er’ and the N word in every other song is all fine though

Pop star Beyonce has found herself on the end of a cancelation campaign by selectively offended word police who have taken offence at her use of the term ‘spaz’ and ‘spazzy’ on one song of her new album.

The song “Heated” on her new album “Renaissance” was targeted by complainers who claim one lyric contains the “ableist slur.”

The full lyric is “Yada, yada, yah, yada, yada, yah-yah – Yada, yada, bom-bom, kah-kah – Spazzing on that a**, spaz on that a**.”

It’s hardly Shakespeare, but it is offensive to the permanently offended.

The word is now generally used to mean ‘freaking out’, but it originates from the word “spastic” which stems from muscle spasm. The term was widely used in the past to describe the medical condition spastic diplegia, a form of cerebral palsy.

Soon after the backlash, it was announced that the words will be edited out:

“The word, not used intentionally in a harmful way, will be replaced,” a statement read.

Many have pointed out that this is perhaps the least offensive thing on the album, which contains vulgar words and slurs in practically every song, as well as violent and sexual imagery.

Some tried to argue that only certain people can use certain words:

Look at the lyrics for this song (if you can be bothered), the first one on the album, and decide whether you’d rather a 10 year old kid hear that or the term ‘spaz’:

And lets not even start a debate about her husband’s lyrics.

Here’s a good solution, don’t listen to it if you don’t like it. It’s worked well for us.

    Report: Hollywood Stars Received Gift Bags At Oscars With Lordships Inside

    While they all fake cry about how their hearts are breaking for Ukraine

    Reports have suggested that Hollywood celebrities attending the Oscars Sunday night received bags which contained ‘gifts’ worth six figures including literal lordships along with plots of land in Scotland.

    No, this is not The Babylon Bee.

    While many of the film stars in attendance have made public calls to support Ukraine, they were offered luxury packages which according to reports included “a $25,000 project from a construction company; a $15,600 four-night stay for two at a luxury resort; a $15,000 three-day holistic wellness retreat; a $12,000 arm sculpting procedure; and a $10,000 skin treatment such a Botox.”

    The top gift, however, was a plot of land in Scotland which would literally make them Lords and Ladies of Glencoe.

    In total the gift bags were said to be worth in the region of $140,000.

    People reacted to the gross opulence on social media, noting that the money could have been spent on aid for the people these celebrities seem so intent on claiming their ‘hearts are breaking’ for.

    British Comedian Ricky Gervais, who has hosted multiple Golden Globe award ceremonies and used the platform to shame the fantasy world of Hollywood, noted that had he been hosting he would have called out the gift bags.

    While the ceremony made world headlines for Will Smith apparently fake slapping Chris Rock, it still received the second lowest ratings in its history.
